Langley, British Columbia –
Fourth year middle Rhonda Schmuland (4th yr, middle, Calgary, AB) and the Trinity Western University women’s volleyball team made it a clean sweep of Simon Fraser Saturday night at TWU. After handling the Clan 3-0 Friday night, the Spartans backed it up with another solid 3-0 (25-20, 25-23, 25-18) win Saturday night. Schmuland led the Spartans with 10 kills and four blocks to improve the tenth-ranked Spartans to 5-7, while keeping the Clan winless at 0-14.

Danielle Foth (1st yr, leftside/rightside, Abbotsford, BC) paced the Spartans in the first set with four kills and five digs as TWU rallied to open the match with a 25-20 win. The Spartans started the set slowly as the Clan’s Lindsay Bailey served SFU to an early 8-4 lead. Then the Spartans used a 7-3 run to tie the set at 11-11. The two teams exchanged points until they were tied at 17-17, and then TWU took control and finished the set with an 8-3 run.

TWU came out in the second determined to take a 2-0 lead. The Spartans jumped out to an early 9-3 lead, but the Clan came storming back. Gillian Church served five consecutive times as SFU closed to within one point, 9-8.  SFU continued to carry the momentum and after a Natalie Eades kill they had earned a 16-14 lead at the second timeout. The Spartans then subbed in Alicia Van Huizen (2nd yr, leftside/rightside, Surrey, BC).Van Huizen sparked TWU and after her third kill of the set TWU had tied the set at 18. The two teams played side-out ball until they were tied at 21. Then a Jodi Schaufele (3rd yr, leftside, Vancouver, BC) kill and a hitting error by SFU’s Rachelle Thomas gave the Spartans a 23-21 lead. The Spartans carried the two-point margin to the end of the set, when Van Huizen got her fourth kill to close out the set at 25-23 for TWU.

Down two sets, the Clan came out strong in the third set. They matched the Spartans point-for-point to the first timeout. Even when the Spartans gained a 12-9 lead SFU did not fade. Rachelle Thomas, who led the Clan with nine kills, powered SFU back to tie the set at 12-12. Then with the two teams tied at 17, TWU started a run to close out the match. SFU attempted to halt the Spartan momentum with a timeout at 20-17, but the Spartans kept control. Rhonda Schmuland made it 22-18 with a kill down the middle, then Jodi Schaufele went back to serve, and when she finished the final was 25-18 for the Spartans.

The Spartans are now in sixth place in Canada West and hold a six-point lead on seventh place Manitoba. TWU is off to UBC next Friday and Saturday for two matches against the #3 Thunderbirds.

Match Notes: Julie Blackburn (2nd yr, libero, Surrey, BC) led all defenders with 24 digs… SFU hit at 10%, while TWU hit at 15%… TWU finished with seven team blocks, while SFU finished with four…
